We have a motor much like that. Wire it for LO-VOLTS. It will now run at 210V three phase. Probably already is.
Next problem is that you don't have three phase. There are converter boxes (2 to 3). I have not used the new ones. We have an old one.

Certainly MAX is correct!! I would visit AUTOMATION DIRECT in the search for a variable speed drive that will provide the power out that you need. You have a bit of flexibility because of the dual voltage motor. If you have 230 volts single phase then the drive for the motor wired for the lower voltage will be the less costly, probably. But YES, use a variable speed drive that delivers three phase..
